2. Appointment of Agents. Subject to the terms and conditions stated herein and subject to the reservation by the Company of the right to sell Notes to any of you acting as principal at a discount for its own account or for resale to one or more investors or other dealers and the Company153s right to sell Notes directly to investors on its own behalf or through other agents, the Company hereby appoints and authorizes Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and the other Agents listed in Schedule I hereto to act as its agents to solicit offers for the purchase of all or part of the Notes from the Company.

(a) Solicitations of Offers to Purchase Notes. At any time following the Commencement Date (defined below), the Company shall notify each Agent from time to time as to the commencement of a period during which the Notes may be offered and sold by the Agents (each period, commencing with such a notification and ending at such time as the authorization for offers and sales through the Agents shall have been suspended by the Company or the Agents as provided hereunder, being herein referred to as an "Offering Period"). The initial Offering Period began on April 20, 2006 (the "Commencement Date"). On the basis of the representations and warranties, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, each of the Agents agrees, as agent of the Company, to use its reasonable efforts to solicit offers to purchase Notes from the Company upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Prospectus (and any supplement thereto) and in the Procedures. Each Agent shall communicate to the Company, orally or in writing, each reasonable offer or indication of interest to purchase Notes received by such Agent as agent The Company shall have the sole right to accept offers to purchase the Notes and may reject any such offer in whole or in part. Each Agent shall have the right to reject, in its discretion reasonably exercised, any offer received by it to purchase the Notes, in whole or in part, and any such rejection shall not be deemed a breach of its agreements contained herein. In soliciting offers to purchase the Notes in its capacity as agent of the Company, each Agent is acting solely as agent for the Company, and not as principal, and does not assume any obligation toward or relationship of agency or trust with any purchaser of the Notes (other than any such obligation or relationship which the Agent assumes independently of this Agreement). Each Agent shall make reasonable efforts to assist the Company in obtaining performance by each purchaser whose offer to purchase Notes has been solicited by such Agent and accepted by the Company, but such Agent shall not, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, be obligated to disclose the identity of any purchaser or have any liability to the Company in the event any such purchase is not consummated for any reason. Except as provided in Section 2(b), under no circumstances will any Agent be obligated to purchase any Notes for its own account.

7



It is understood and agreed, however, that any of you may purchase Notes as principal or agent pursuant to Section 2(b).

The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to instruct the Agents to suspend at any time, for any period of time or permanently, the solicitation of offers to purchase Notes. Upon receipt of instructions from the Company, such Agent will forthwith suspend solicitation of offers to purchase Notes from the Company until such time as the Company has advised them that such solicitation may be resumed.

The Company agrees to pay each Agent a commission, on the Settlement Date with respect to each sale of Notes by the Company as a result of a solicitation made by such Agent, in an amount agreed upon by the Agent and the Company. Such commission shall be payable as specified in the Procedures. Without the prior approval of the Company, no Agent (acting on an agency basis) may reallow any portion of the commission payable pursuant hereto to dealers or purchasers in connection with the offer and sale of any Notes.

Subject to the provisions of this Section 2 and to the Procedures, offers for the purchase of Notes may be solicited by an Agent as agent for the Company at such time and in such amounts as such Agent shall deem advisable. The Company may from time to time offer Notes for sale otherwise than through an Agent; provided, however, that so long as this Agreement is in effect the Company shall not solicit or accept offers to purchase Notes through any agent other than an Agent.

If the Company defaults in its obligations to deliver Notes to a purchaser whose offer it has accepted, the Company and the Guarantor shall indemnify and hold each of the Agents harmless against any loss, claim or damage arising from or as a result of such default by the Company.

(b) Purchases of Notes. Subject to the terms and conditions stated herein, whenever the Company and any of you determine that the Company shall sell Notes directly to any of you as principal or agent (in such capacity, the "Purchaser"), each such sale of Notes shall be made in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and a supplemental agreement relating to such sale. Each such supplemental agreement (which may be either an oral or written agreement) is herein referred to as a "Terms Agreement". Each Terms Agreement shall describe the Notes to be purchased by the Purchaser pursuant thereto and shall specify the terms of the offered Notes. A Terms Agreement may also specify certain provisions relating to the reoffering of such Notes by the Purchaser. Any written Terms Agreement may be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B. The Purchaser153s commitment to purchase Notes shall be deemed to have been made on the basis of the representations and warranties of the Company and the Guarantor herein contained and shall be subject to the terms and conditions herein set forth.

Delivery of the Notes sold to the Purchaser pursuant to a Terms Agreement shall be made not later than the Settlement Date specified in the Terms Agreement against payment of funds to the Company in the net amount due to the Company for such Notes by the method and in the form set forth in the Procedures unless otherwise agreed to between the Company and the Purchaser.

8


Unless otherwise agreed to between the Company and the Purchaser in a Terms Agreement, any Note sold to a Purchaser (i) shall be purchased by such Purchaser at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof less a percentage equal to the applicable commission and (ii) may be resold by such Purchaser at varying prices from time to time or, if set forth in the applicable Terms Agreement and Pricing Supplement, at a fixed public offering price. In connection with any resale of Notes purchased, a Purchaser may use a selling or dealer group and may reallow to any broker or dealer any portion of the discount or commission payable pursuant hereto.

(c) Additional Agents. Notwithstanding paragraph 2(a) or 2(b) above, the Company may from time to time appoint one or more additional financial institutions experienced in the distribution of securities as an Agent under this Agreement, for the duration of this Agreement (subject to Section 7 hereof) or on an issue by issue basis, pursuant to a letter (an "Agent Accession Confirmation") substantially in the form of Exhibit C or Exhibit E to this Agreement, as appropriate, provided that any such additional party shall have first requested appointment as such upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement in writing to the Company pursuant to a letter (an "Agent Accession Letter") substantially in the form of Exhibit D or Exhibit F to this Agreement, as appropriate, whereupon it shall, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the relevant Agent Accession Letter and the relevant Agent Accession Confirmation, become a party to this Agreement as an Agent, vested with all the authority, rights and powers and subject to all the duties and obligations of an Agent as if originally named as an Agent hereunder. The Company shall promptly notify the Guarantor, the Trustees and the other Agents of any such appointment, but only in the event that any such additional Agent is appointed for the duration of this Agreement.

3. Offering and Sale of Notes. Each Agent and the Company agree to perform the respective duties and obligations specifically provided to be performed by them in the Procedures.

4. Agreements. (A) The Company and the Guarantor agree with each of you that:

(a) At any time during an Offering Period or during the time a prospectus relating to the Notes is required to be delivered under the Securities Act (including in circumstances where such requirement may be satisfied pursuant to Rule 172), prior to amending or supplementing either Registration Statement or the Prospectus, the Company and the Guarantor will furnish the Agents and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, counsel to the Agents, with a copy of each proposed amendment or supplement (other than an amendment or supplement to be made pursuant to incorporation by reference of a document filed under the Exchange Act, or a Pricing Supplement or an amendment or supplement relating solely to an offering of securities other than the Notes) and will not file any such proposed amendment or supplement to which they reasonably object. The Company and the Guarantor will promptly cause each amendment of or supplement to the Prospectus to be filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b). If the Prospectus is amended or supplemented (other than by a Pricing Supplement or an amendment or supplement relating solely to an offering of securities other than the Notes), each Agent shall be furnished with such information relating to such filing as it may reasonably request, and no Agent shall be obligated to solicit offers to purchase Notes so long as

9



it is not reasonably satisfied that such amendment or supplement complies in all material respects with the provisions of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act. At any time during an Offering Period or during the time a prospectus relating to the Notes is required to be delivered under the Securities Act, the Company and the Guarantor will promptly advise each Agent of (i) the filing of any amendment or supplement to either Prospectus (other than a Pricing Supplement or an amendment or supplement to be made pursuant to incorporation by reference of a document filed under the Exchange Act or relating solely to an offering of securities other than the Notes), (ii) the filing of any amendment to the Registration Statement, (iii) the receipt by the Company or the Guarantor of comments from the Commission relating to or requests by the Commission for any amendment of the Registration Statement or any amendment of or supplement to either Prospectus or for any additional information, (iv) the issuance by the Commission of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Registration Statement or of any notice objecting to its use or the institution or threatening of any proceeding for that purpose and (v) the receipt by the Company or the Guarantor of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification of the Notes for sale in any jurisdiction or the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for such purpose. The Company and the Guarantor will use their reasonable best efforts to prevent the issuance of any such stop order or the occurrence of any such suspension or objection to the use of the Registration Statement and, upon such issuance, occurrence or notice of objection, to obtain as soon as possible the withdrawal of such stop order or relief from such occurrence or objection, including, if necessary, by filing an amendment to the Registration Statement or a new registration statement and using their best efforts to have such amendment or new registration statement declared effective as soon as practicable.

(b) If, at any time prior to the filing of the related Pricing Supplement pursuant to Rule 424(b), any event occurs as a result of which the Disclosure Package would include any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein in the light of the circumstances under which they were made at such time not misleading, the Company will (1) notify promptly each Agent so that any use of the Disclosure Package may cease until it is amended or supplemented; (2) amend or supplement the Disclosure Package to correct such statement or omission; and (3) supply any amendment or supplement to each Agent in such quantities as such Agent may reasonably request.

(c) At any time during an Offering Period, the Company and the Guarantor will comply with all requirements imposed upon them by the Securities Act, as now and hereafter amended, and by the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder, as from time to time in force, so far as necessary to permit the continuance of sales of or dealings in the Notes as contemplated by the provisions hereof and the Prospectus. If during such period any event occurs as a result of which the Prospectus as then amended or supplemented would include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances then existing, not misleading, or if, in the opinion of the Company or the Guarantor, during such period it is necessary to amend or supplement the Registration Statement or the Prospectus or file a new registration statement to comply with the Securities Act or the Exchange Act or the respective rules thereunder, the Company promptly will notify each Agent to suspend the solicitation of offers to purchase the Notes and to cease sales of any Notes. To the extent required under the provision in the last

10



sentence of this subsection (c), the Company and the Guarantor promptly will amend or supplement the Registration Statement or the relevant Prospectus or file a new registration statement (at the expense of the Company and the Guarantor ) so as to correct such statement or omission or effect such compliance and will use their best efforts to have any amendment to the Registration Statement or new registration statement declared effective as soon as practicable in order to avoid any disruption in use of the Prospectus (and any supplements thereto). If such amendment or supplement, and any documents, certificates, opinions and letters furnished to the Agents pursuant to subsections (m), (n) and (o) of this Section 4(A) in connection with the preparation and filing of such amendment or supplement, are reasonably satisfactory in all respects to the Lead Agent, in its sole discretion, upon the filing of such amendment or supplement with the Commission or effectiveness of an amendment to the Registration Statement, the Agents will resume solicitation of offers to purchase Notes hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither the Company nor the Guarantor shall be required to comply with the provisions of subsection (c) of this Section 4(A) during any period from the time any Agent shall have been notified to suspend the solicitation of offers to purchase the Notes in its capacity as Agent (whether under this subparagraph (c) or otherwise under this Agreement) to the time the Company shall determine that solicitation of offers to purchase the Notes should be resumed; provided that if any Agent holds any Notes purchased as principal or agent pursuant to a Terms Agreement, the Company and the Guarantor shall comply with the provisions of subsection (c) of this Section 4(A) during the period when a prospectus relating to the Notes is required to be delivered pursuant to the Securities Act (including in circumstances where such requirement may be satisfied pursuant to Rule 172).

(d) The Guarantor will comply, in a timely manner, with all applicable requirements under the Exchange Act relating to the filing with the Commission of the Guarantor153s reports pursuant to Section 13(a), 13(c) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act and, if then applicable, of the Guarantor153s proxy statements pursuant to Section 14 of the Exchange Act.

(e) The Company and the Guarantor will use their best efforts to qualify the Notes for sale under the securities laws of such jurisdictions as the Lead Agent or other Agent participating in the offer and sale of a series of Notes may reasonably designates in connection with the offer and sale of such series of Notes, to maintain such qualifications in effect so long as required for the distribution of the Notes and, if requested by the Lead Agent or other Agent participating in the offer and sale of such series of Notes, to arrange for the determination of the legality of the Notes for purchase by institutional investors, except that neither the Company nor the Guarantor shall be required in connection therewith to qualify to do business in any jurisdiction where it is not now so qualified or to take any action which would subject it to general or unlimited service of process in any jurisdiction where it is not now so subject.

(f) Upon request, the Company and the Guarantor will furnish to the Agents and counsel for the Agents, without charge, signed copies of the Registration Statement (including exhibits thereto) and the Prospectus and, so long as delivery of a prospectus relating to the Notes by an Agent may be required by the Securities Act (including in circumstances where such requirement may be satisfied pursuant to Rule 172), as many copies of each additional prospectus supplement, Pricing Supplement and Issuer Free Writing Prospectus and any supplements thereto as each Agent may reasonably request. The Company will

11



pay the expenses of printing or other production of all documents relating to each offering that are required to be prepared, furnished or delivered by it.

(g) Upon request, the Company will prepare a final term sheet, containing solely a description of final terms of the Securities and the offering thereof (a "Final Term Sheet"), in a form approved by the relevant Agent and will file such term sheet pursuant to Rule 433(d) within the time required by such Rule.

(h) (i) Each of the Company and the Guarantor agrees that, unless it has obtained or will obtain, as the case may be, the prior written consent of the Lead Agent, and (ii) each Agent, severally and not jointly, agrees with the Company and the Guarantor that, unless it has obtained or will obtain, as the case may be, the prior written consent of the Company and the Guarantor, it has not made and will not make any offer relating to the Notes that would constitute an Issuer Free Writing Prospectus or that would otherwise constitute a "free writing prospectus" (as defined in Rule 405) required to be filed by the Company or the Guarantor with the Commission or retained by the Company or the Guarantor under Rule 433; provided that the prior written consent of the parties hereto shall be deemed to have been given in respect of any Final Term Sheet and any free writing prospectus prepared by an Agent in connection with a specific offering of the Notes and approved for use by the Company and the Guarantor. Any such free writing prospectus consented to by the relevant Agent or the Company and the Guarantor is hereinafter referred to as a "Permitted Free Writing Prospectus." Each of the Company and the Guarantor agrees that (x) it has treated and will treat, as the case may be, each Permitted Free Writing Prospectus as an Issuer Free Writing Prospectus and (y) it has complied and will comply, as the case may be, with the requirements of Rules 164 and 433 applicable to any Permitted Free Writing Prospectus, including in respect of timely filing with the Commission, legending and record keeping.

(i) So long as any of the Notes are outstanding, the Guarantor agrees to furnish to each Agent, upon its reasonable request, as soon as available, all reports and financial statements filed by or on behalf of the Guarantor with the Commission or any national securities exchange. The Guarantor shall be deemed to have furnished such information to such Agent if (i) such reports and financial statements are generally available on, and can be printed and/or downloaded from, the Securities and Exchange Commission153s internet website, www.sec.gov (or any other website of which the Guarantor notifies such Agent), and (ii) such Agent has been notified by the Guarantor that such reports and financial statements have been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(j) The Company and the Guarantor shall, whether or not any sale of Notes is consummated or this Agreement is terminated, pay all expenses incident to the performance of their obligations under this Agreement and under any Terms Agreement, including, without limitation, the fees and disbursements of its accountants and counsel; the cost of printing (or other production) and delivery of the Registration Statement, the Prospectus, any Pricing Supplements, Final Term Sheets or Issuer Free Writing Prospectuses, all amendments thereof and supplements thereto, the Indentures, and all other documents relating to the offering, the cost of preparing, printing, packaging and delivering the Notes; the fees and disbursements (including reasonable fees of counsel) incurred in connection with the qualification of the Notes for sale and determination of eligibility for investment of the Notes under the securities or blue sky laws of

12



such jurisdictions as the relevant Agent may reasonably designate; the fees and disbursements of the Trustees; the fees of any agency that rates the Notes; the fees and expenses in connection with any listing of the Notes on The NASDAQ Stock Market, NYSE Arca, Luxembourg Stock Exchange or such other securities exchange agreed to by the Company; the fees and expenses incurred with respect to any filing with the Financial Regulatory Authority, Inc.; the reasonable fees and disbursements of Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, as counsel for the Agents, or other counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Lead Agent, the Company and the Guarantor; and such other expenses, including, without limitation, advertising expenses as may be agreed upon by the Agents, the Company and the Guarantor; provided, however, that with respect to any purchase of Notes by one of you as principal or agent pursuant to a Terms Agreement, the fees and disbursements of Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP or other counsel to you shall not be paid by either the Company or the Guarantor.

(k) During the term of this Agreement, the Company and the Guarantor shall furnish to each Agent such relevant documents and certificates of officers of the Company and the Guarantor relating to the business, operations and affairs of the Company and the Guarantor, the Registration Statement, the Prospectus, any Pricing Supplement, Final Term Sheet and Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, any amendments thereof or supplements thereto, the Indentures, the Notes, this Agreement, the Procedures, any Terms Agreement and the performance by the Company and the Guarantor of their obligations hereunder or thereunder as the Agents may from time to time reasonably request. The Company and the Guarantor shall promptly notify the Agents orally, followed by written notice, of any downgrading or of the receipt by either of them of any notice of any intended downgrading in the rating accorded any securities of either the Company or the Guarantor by Moody153s Investors Service, Inc. or Standard & Poor153s Ratings Services or, if one of them no longer rates the securities of either the Company or the Guarantor, another "nationally recognized statistical rating organization", as such term is defined for purposes of Rule 436(g)(2).

(l) If any issue of Notes is to be listed on The NASDAQ Stock Market, NYSE Arca or such other securities exchange agreed to by the Company, as specified in the applicable Pricing Supplement, the Company and the Guarantor will use their best efforts to obtain the listing of such issue of Notes on such securities exchange, to furnish to such securities exchange all documents, information and undertakings that may be reasonably necessary in order to effect such listing, and to cause such listing to be continued so long as any of the Notes of such issue remain outstanding.

(m) Each time the Registration Statement or the Prospectus are amended or supplemented (other than by filing with the Commission: (i) a Pricing Supplement, (ii) an amendment or supplement relating solely to an offering of securities other than the Notes, (iii) a Current Report on Form 8-K (or any successor item thereto), or (iv) any other amendment or supplement that the Lead Agent reasonably deems immaterial), the Company and the Guarantor will deliver or cause to be delivered forthwith to the Agents a certificate of the Company and the Guarantor, signed by (A) on behalf of the Company, the Chairman, the President or any Vice President and by the Treasurer, any Assistant Treasurer, the Controller, the Secretary or any Assistant Secretary and, (B) on behalf of the Guarantor, the Chairman, any Vice Chairman, any Vice President, the principal financial officer, the General Counsel, the Controller, any Deputy

13



Controller or the principal accounting officer and by the Treasurer, any Assistant Treasurer, the Secretary or any Assistant Secretary (or another officer or officers acceptable to the Lead Agent), dated as of the date of the effectiveness of such amendment or the date of filing with the Commission of such supplement or document, as the case may be, in form reasonably satisfactory to the Lead Agent, to the effect that the statements contained in the certificate referred to in Section 5(b) (iii) that was last furnished to the Agents (either pursuant to Section 5(b) (iii) or pursuant to this Section 4(A)(m)) are true and correct at the time of the effectiveness of such amendment or the time of filing of such supplement or document, as the case may be, as though made at and as of such time (except that such statements shall be deemed to relate to the Registration Statement, as amended as of the time of effectiveness of such amendment, and to the relevant Prospectus, as amended and supplemented as of the date of such certificate) or, in lieu of such certificate, a certificate of the same tenor as the certificate referred to in Section 5(b) (iii) but modified, if necessary, to relate to the Registration Statement, as amended as of the time of the effectiveness of such amendment, and to the relevant Prospectus, as amended and supplemented as of the date of such certificate.

(n) Each time the Registration Statement or the Prospectus are amended or supplemented (other than by filing with the Commission: (i) a Pricing Supplement, (ii) an amendment or supplement relating solely to an offering of securities other than the Notes, (iii) a Current Report on Form 8-K (or any successor item thereto), or (iv) any other amendment or supplement that the Lead Agent reasonably deems immaterial), the Company and the Guarantor shall furnish to or cause to be furnished forthwith to the Agents the written opinion of the Associate General Counsel-Capital Markets & Corporate Reporting of the Guarantor, or, in connection with the filing of the Guarantor153s Annual Report on Form 10-K, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, or in either case, other counsel for the Company and/or the Guarantor or other external counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Lead Agent, dated as of the date of the effectiveness of such amendment or the date of filing with the Commission of such supplement or document, as the case may be, in form reasonably satisfactory to the Lead Agent. In lieu of such opinion, counsel last furnishing such an opinion to the Agents may furnish to the Agents a letter to the effect that the Agents may rely on such last opinion to the same extent as though it were dated as of the date of such letter and authorizing reliance on such last opinion (except that statements in such last opinion will be deemed to relate to the Registration Statement, as amended at the time of the effectiveness of such amendment, and to the Prospectus, as amended and supplemented as of the date of such letter).

(o) Each time that the Registration Statement or the Prospectus are amended or supplemented to set forth amended or supplemental financial information supplemented (other than by filing with the Commission: (i) a Pricing Supplement, (ii) an amendment or supplement relating solely to an offering of securities other than the Notes, (iii) a Current Report on Form 8-K (or any successor item thereto), or (iv) any other amendment or supplement that the Agents reasonably deems immaterial), the Guarantor shall cause KPMG LLP, Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm, forthwith to furnish the Agents a letter, dated as of the date of the effectiveness of such amendment or the date of filing of such supplement or document, as the case may be, in form satisfactory to the Lead Agent, of the same tenor as the letter of such independent public accountants referred to in Section 5(b)(iv) hereof but modified to relate to the Registration Statement and Prospectus, as amended and supplemented to the date of such letter,

14



with such changes as may be necessary to reflect changes in the financial statements and other information derived from the accounting records of the Guarantor; provided, however, that if the Registration Statement or the Prospectus are amended or supplemented solely to include or incorporate by reference financial information with respect to a fiscal quarter, KPMG LLP may limit the scope of such letter to the unaudited financial statements included in such amendment or supplement.

(p) Each solicitation of an offer to purchase Notes by you, each acceptance by the Company of an offer for the purchase of Notes, each sale of Notes to any Purchaser and each Settlement Date shall be deemed to be an affirmation that the representations and warranties of the Company and the Guarantor contained in or made pursuant to this Agreement are true and correct in all material respects at the time of such solicitation, acceptance, sale or issuance and delivery, as the case may be, as though made at and as of such time (and it is understood that such representations and warranties shall relate to the Registration Statement and the Prospectuses as amended and supplemented to each such time).

(q) Anything to the contrary in this Section 4 notwithstanding, if, at the time of any required notice, amendment or supplement to the Registration Statement or the Prospectuses, the Company shall have instructed the Agents to suspend solicitation of offers to purchase the Notes in each Agent153s capacity as agent of the Company and either Agent does not then hold any Notes acquired by it as principal pursuant to a Terms Agreement, neither the Company nor the Guarantor shall be obligated to furnish or cause to be furnished any notice, certificate, opinion or letter otherwise required until such time as it shall determine that solicitation of offers to purchase the Notes should be resumed; and provided, further, that, prior to resuming such solicitation the Agents shall be entitled to receive any such notices, certificates, opinions or letters not previously furnished, accurate as of the date of such notice, certificate, opinion or letter.

(B) Each Agent represents to and agrees with the Company and the Guarantor that it will comply with all relevant selling restrictions included in the Prospectus or Pricing Supplement for each series of Notes such Agent offers or sells.

(C) Each Agent acknowledges and agrees with the Company and the Guarantor that it has the sole responsibility to ensure, to the extent that such Agent makes offers or sales of the Notes directly to investors, prior to any offer or sale of the Notes, that it has a reasonable basis to believe that the Notes are suitable for the investors to whom the Notes are being sold, that it is lawful for such investors to purchase the Notes and that the investors are capable of evaluating the risks and merits of any investment in the Notes. Further, each Agent undertakes that it will only make offers and sales of the Notes through broker-dealers that acknowledge to and agree with such Agent to comply with all applicable United States federal and state securities laws, the applicable rules and regulations of any regulatory body promulgated thereunder and the applicable rules and regulations of FINRA.

5. Conditions to the Obligations of the Agents. Each Agent153s obligations to solicit offers to purchase Notes as agent of the Company, any Agent153s obligation to purchase Notes as principal pursuant to any Terms Agreement or otherwise, and the obligation of any other Agent to purchase Notes from the Company will be subject to the accuracy in all material

15



respects of the representations and warranties on the part of the Company and the Guarantor herein contained, to the accuracy of the statements of the officers of the Company and the Guarantor made in each certificate furnished pursuant to the provisions hereof and to the performance and observance by the Company and the Guarantor of all covenants and agreements herein contained on their part to be performed and observed (in the case of the Agents153 obligations to solicit offers to purchase Notes, at the time of such solicitation, and, in the case of any Purchaser153s obligation to purchase Notes, at the time the Company accepts the offer to purchase such Notes and at the time of purchase) and (in each case) to the following additional conditions precedent when and as specified:

(a) On the corresponding Settlement Date:

(iii) There shall not have occurred any (x) suspension or material limitation of trading in securities generally on the New York Stock Exchange, or any setting of minimum prices for trading on such exchange, or any suspension of trading of the Guarantor153s common stock by the Commission or the New York Stock Exchange, (y) declaration of a general moratorium on commercial banking activities by either federal or New York state authorities or exchange controls shall have been imposed by the United States or (z) any outbreak or escalation of hostilities, any declaration by the United States of war or national emergency or other calamity or crisis the effect of which on financial markets is such to as to make it, in the Lead Agent153s sole judgment, after consultation with the Company, impracticable or inadvisable to proceed with the offering of the Notes as contemplated by the relevant Prospectus, as amended or supplemented, except, in the case of any purchase of Notes by any Agent as principal, for any such event occurring before the Company accepted the offer to purchase such Notes.

(ii) Each Agent shall have received from Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, counsel for the Agents (or other counsel reasonably acceptable to such Agent, the Company and the Guarantor), such customary opinion or opinions dated the Commencement Date or the Settlement Date, as the case may be, as the Agents may reasonably require.

17

6. Indemnification and Contribution. (a) The Company and the Guarantor agree to indemnify and hold harmless each Agent, the directors, officers, employees and agents of each Agent and each person who controls any Agent within the meaning of either the Securities Act or the Exchange Act and each of your affiliates within the meaning of Rule 405 under the Securities Act against any and all losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which they or any of them may become subject under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act or other Federal or state statutory law or regulation, at common law or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the registration statement for the registration of the Notes as originally filed or in any amendment thereof, or in the Base Prospectus, any prospectus supplement, any preliminary or final Pricing Supplement or any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, or in any amendment thereof or supplement thereto, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and agrees to reimburse each such indemnified party, as incurred, for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that the Company and the Guarantor will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is based upon any such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made therein in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company or the Guarantor by any Agent specifically for inclusion therein. This indemnity agreement will be in addition to any liability which the Company and the Guarantor may otherwise have.

18


(b) Each Agent severally and not jointly agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and the Guarantor, each of their respective directors, each of their respective officers who signs the Registration Statement, and each person who controls the Company or the Guarantor within the meaning of either the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, to the same extent as the foregoing indemnity from the Company and the Guarantor to each Agent, but only with reference to written information relating to such Agent furnished to the Company or the Guarantor by such Agent specifically for inclusion in the documents referred to in the foregoing indemnity. This indemnity agreement will be in addition to any liability that any Agent may otherwise have.

(c) Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 6 of notice of the commencement of any action, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against the indemnifying party under this Section 6, notify the indemnifying party in writing of the commencement thereof; but the failure so to notify the indemnifying party (i) will not relieve it from liability under paragraph (a) or (b) above unless and to the extent it did not otherwise learn of such action and such failure results in the forfeiture by the indemnifying party of substantial rights and defenses and (ii) will not, in any event, relieve the indemnifying party from any obligations to any indemnified party other than the indemnification obligation provided in paragraph (a) or (b) above. The indemnifying party shall be entitled to appoint counsel of the indemnifying party153s choice at the indemnifying party153s expense to represent the indemnified party in any action for which indemnification is sought (in which case the indemnifying party shall not thereafter be responsible for the fees and expenses of any separate counsel retained by the indemnified party or parties except as set forth below); provided, however, that such counsel shall be satisfactory to the indemnified party. Notwithstanding the indemnifying party153s election to appoint counsel to represent the indemnified party in an action, the indemnified party shall have the right to employ separate counsel (including local counsel), and the indemnifying party shall bear the reasonable fees, costs and expenses of such separate counsel if (i) the use of counsel chosen by the indemnifying party to represent the indemnified party would present such counsel with a conflict of interest, (ii) the actual or potential defendants in, or targets of, any such action include both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that there may be legal defenses available to it and/or other indemnified parties which are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party, (iii) the indemnifying party shall not have employed counsel satisfactory to the indemnified party to represent the indemnified party within a reasonable time after notice of the institution of such action or (iv) the indemnifying party shall authorize the indemnified party to employ separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party. An indemnifying party will not, without the prior written consent of the indemnified parties, settle or compromise or consent to the entry of any judgment with respect to any pending or threatened claim, action, suit or proceeding in respect of which indemnification or contribution may be sought hereunder (whether or not the indemnified parties are actual or potential parties to such claim or action) unless such settlement, compromise or consent includes an unconditional release of each indemnified party from all liability arising out of such claim, action, suit or proceeding.

(d) In the event that the indemnity provided in paragraph (a), (b) or (c) of this Section 6 is unavailable to or insufficient to hold harmless an indemnified party for any reason, the Company, the Guarantor and the Agents severally agree to contribute to the aggregate losses,

19



claims, damages and liabilities (including legal or other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating or defending same) (collectively "Losses") to which the Company, the Guarantor and one or more of the Agents may be subject in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company and the Guarantor on the one hand and by the Agents on the other from the offering of the Notes; provided, however, that in no case shall (i) any Agent (except as may be provided in any agreement among Agents relating to the offering of the Notes) be responsible for any amount in excess of the discount or commission applicable to the Notes purchased by such Agent hereunder. If the allocation provided by the immediately preceding sentence is unavailable for any reason, the Company, the Guarantor and the Agents severally shall contribute in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only such relative benefits but also the relative fault of the Company and the Guarantor on the one hand and of the Agents on the other in connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such Losses as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. Benefits received by the Company and the Guarantor shall be deemed to be equal to the total net proceeds from the offering (before deducting expenses) received by the Company, and benefits received by the Agents shall be deemed to be equal to the total discounts and commissions, in each case as set forth in the Pricing Supplement. Relative fault shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any untrue or any alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information provided by the Company and the Guarantor on the one hand or the Agents on the other, the intent of the parties and their relative knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such untrue statement or omission. The Company, the Guarantor and the Agents agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution were determined by pro rata allocation or any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to above. Notwithstanding the provisions of this paragraph (d), no person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. For purposes of this Section 6, each person who controls an Agent within the meaning of either the Securities Act or the Exchange Act and each director, officer, employee and agent of an Agent shall have the same rights to contribution as such Agent, and each person who controls the Company or the Guarantor, as applicable, within the meaning of either the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, each officer of the Company or the Guarantor, as applicable, who shall have signed the Registration Statement and each director of the Company or the Guarantor, as applicable, shall have the same rights to contribution as the Company or the Guarantor, as applicable, subject in each case to the applicable terms and conditions of this paragraph (d).

7. Termination. (a) This Agreement will continue in effect until terminated as provided in this Section 7. This Agreement may be terminated by either the Company or the Guarantor as to any Agent, or by any Agent, insofar as this Agreement relates to such Agent, by giving written notice of such termination to such Agent or the Company and the Guarantor, as the case may be. The termination of this Agreement shall not require termination of any agreement by any of you to purchase Notes as principal, and the termination of any such Agreement shall not require termination of this Agreement. If this Agreement is terminated, neither the Company and the Guarantor, on the one hand, nor any Agent, on the other hand, shall have any liability to each other, except as provided in the first sentence of the third paragraph of Section 2(a) and Sections 4(A)(b), 4(A)(g), 4(A)(h), 6, 8 and 11, and except that, if at the time of

20



termination an offer to purchase any of the Notes has been accepted by the Company but the time of delivery to the purchaser or its agent of the Note or Notes relating thereto has not occurred, the representations and warranties of the Company and the Guarantor stated in Section 2 and the Company153s obligations under the Procedures, and in Sections 2(c), 4(A)(a), 4(A)(b), 4(A)(c), 4(A)(d), 4(A)(e), 4(A)(f), 4(A)(g), 4(A)(i), 4(A)(j), 4(A)(k), 4(A)(1), 4(A)(m), 4(A)(o), 4(A)(q) and 5 shall also remain in full force and effect and not be terminated until the delivery of such Notes.

8. Representations and Indemnities to Survive. The respective agreements, representations, warranties, indemnities and other statements of the Company and the Guarantor or their officers and of any of you set forth in or made pursuant to this Agreement will remain in full force and effect, regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of you, the Company, the Guarantor or any of the officers, directors or controlling persons referred to in Section 6 hereof, and will survive delivery of and payment for the Notes. The provisions of Section 4(j) and Section 6 hereof shall survive the termination or cancellation of this Agreement.

9. Notices. All communications hereunder will be in writing and effective only on receipt, and, if sent to an Agent, will be delivered or sent by mail or transmitted by any standard form of telecommunication and confirmed to such Agent, at the address specified on Schedule I hereto; or, if sent to the Company or the Guarantor, will be delivered or sent by mail or transmitted by any standard form of telecommunication and confirmed to it at 153 E. 53rd Street, 6th Floor, New York, New York 10043, Attention: Assistant Treasurer (fax no.: (212) 793-5629), with a copy to Citigroup Inc., One Court Square, 45th Floor, Long Island City, New York 11120, Attn: Associate General Counsel : Capital Markets and Corporate Reporting (fax no.: (718) 248-2705.

10. Successors. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective successors and the officers and directors and controlling persons referred to in Section 6 hereof. Nothing expressed or implied in this Agreement or any Terms Agreement is intended or shall be construed to give any person, firm or corporation, other than the parties hereto and their respective successors and the controlling persons and officers and directors referred to in Section 6 and their heirs and legal representatives, any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or in respect of this Agreement or any Terms Agreement or any provision herein or therein contained. This Agreement and any Terms Agreement and all conditions and provisions hereof and thereof except to the extent provided for in Section 5 hereof are intended to be for the sole and exclusive benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and said controlling persons and officers and directors and their heirs and legal representatives, and for the benefit of no other person, firm or corporation. No Purchaser of Notes shall be deemed to be a successor by reason merely of such purchase. This Agreement and the rights and obligations of any of you hereunder may not be assigned without the prior written consent of the Company and the Guarantor.

11. Waivers. Neither any failure nor delay on the part of any party to exercise any right, remedy, power or privilege under this Agreement (singly and collectively referred to as a "Right") shall operate as a waiver of such Right, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any Right preclude any other or further exercise of any Right, nor shall any waiver of any Right

21



with respect to any occurrence be construed as a waiver of any Right with respect to any other occurrence.

12. No Fiduciary Duty. The Company and the Guarantor hereby acknowledge that (i) the purchase and sale of the Notes pursuant to this Agreement is an arm153s-length commercial transaction between the Company and the Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Agents and any affiliate through which it may be acting, on the other, (ii) the Agents are acting as principal and not as an agent or fiduciary of the Company or the Guarantor and (iii) the Company153s engagement of the Agents in connection with the offering and the process leading up to the offering is as independent contractors and not in any other capacity. Furthermore, each of the Company and the Guarantor agrees that it is solely responsible for making its own judgments in connection with the offering (irrespective of whether any of the Agents has advised or is currently advising the Company or the Guarantor on related or other matters). The Company and the Guarantor agree that they will not claim that the Agents have rendered advisory services of any nature or respect, or owe an agency, fiduciary or similar duty to the Company or the Guarantor, in connection with such transaction or the process leading thereto.

13. Integration. This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements and understandings (whether written or oral) between the Company, the Guarantor and the Agents, or any of them, with respect to the subject matter hereof.

EXHIBIT A

CITIGROUP FUNDING INC.

Medium-Term Notes, Series D and Series E, Administrative Procedures

August 26, 2011

The Medium-Term Notes, Series D (the "Series D Notes") and Medium-Term Notes, Series E (the "Series E Notes," and, together with the Series D Notes, the "Notes") of Citigroup Funding Inc. (the "Company"), any payments due on which are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by (the "Guarantee") Citigroup Inc. (the "Guarantor"), are to be offered on a continuing basis. Citigroup Global Markets Inc. has agreed, as agent, to solicit purchases of Notes issued in fully registered form. (The term "Agent" when used in these Administrative Procedures, means Citigroup Global Markets Inc.) The Agent will not be obligated to purchase Notes for its own account. The Notes are being sold pursuant to a Global Selling Agency Agreement among the Company, the Guarantor, and the agents named therein (including the Agent) dated the date hereof (the "Agency Agreement"). The Notes have been registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission"). The Bank of New York Mellon is the successor trustee under the Indenture, dated as of June 1, 2005, under which the Series D Notes will be issued (the "Senior Debt Indenture"). Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas is the trustee (together with The Bank of New York Mellon, the "Trustees") under the Indenture, dated as of June 1, 2005, under which the Series E Notes will be issued (the "Subordinated Debt Indenture," and, together with the Senior Debt Indenture, the "Indentures"). The Series D Notes will constitute part of the senior debt of the Company and will rank equally with all other unsecured and unsubordinated debt of the Company. The Guarantee of the Series D Notes will constitute part of the senior debt of the Guarantor and will rank equally with all other unsecured and unsubordinated debt of the Guarantor. The Series E Notes will be subordinate and junior in the right of payment to all Citigroup Funding Senior Indebtedness, to the extent and in the manner set forth in the Subordinated Debt Indenture. The Guarantee of the Series E Notes will be subordinate and junior in the right of payment to all Citigroup Senior Indebtedness, to the extent and in the manner set forth in the Subordinated Debt Indenture.

The Agency Agreement provides that Notes may also be purchased by the Agent acting solely as principal and not as agent. In the event of any such purchase, the functions of both the Agent and the beneficial owner under the administrative procedures set forth below shall be performed by the Agent acting solely as principal, unless otherwise agreed to between the Company, the Guarantor and the Agent acting as principal.

Each Note will be represented by either a Global Security (as defined hereinafter) or a certificate delivered to the Holder thereof or a Person designated by such Holder (a "Certificated Note"). Each Global Security representing Series D Notes will be delivered to Citibank, N.A., and each Global Security representing Series E Notes will be delivered to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, each acting as agent for The Depository Trust Company or any successor depositary selected by the Company ("DTC", which term, as used herein, includes any successor depositary selected by the Company), and will be recorded in the

A-1



book-entry system maintained by DTC (a "Book-Entry Note"). An owner of a Book-Entry Note will not be entitled to receive a certificate representing such Note.

The procedures to be followed during, and the specific terms of, the solicitation of orders by the Agent and the sale as a result thereof by the Company are explained below. Administrative and record-keeping responsibilities will be handled for the Company by its Treasury Department. The Company will advise the Agent and the Trustees in writing of those persons handling administrative responsibilities with whom the Agent and the Trustees are to communicate regarding orders to purchase Notes and the details of their delivery. The term "Trustees" as used in these procedures means the Trustees and any other agents appointed by the Trustees or the Company.

Administrative procedures and specific terms of the offering are explained below. Book-Entry Notes will be issued in accordance with the administrative procedures set forth in Part I hereof, as adjusted in accordance with changes in DTC153s operating requirements, and Certificated Notes will be issued in accordance with the administrative procedures set forth in Part II hereof. Unless otherwise defined herein, terms defined in the Indentures, the Agency Agreement, the Notes or the Prospectus Supplement relating to the Notes shall be used herein as therein defined. Notes for which interest is calculated on the basis of a fixed interest rate, which may be zero, are referred to herein as "Fixed Rate Notes". Notes for which interest is calculated on the basis of a floating interest rate are referred to herein as "Floating Rate Notes". To the extent the procedures set forth below conflict with the provisions of the Notes, the Indentures, DTC153s operating requirements or the Agency Agreement, the relevant provisions of the Notes, the Indentures, DTC153s operating requirements and the Agency Agreement shall control.

PART I

Administrative Procedures for
Book-Entry Notes

In connection with the qualification of the Book-Entry Notes for eligibility in the book-entry system maintained by DTC, Citibank, N.A. and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas (together, the "DTC Agents") will perform the custodial, document control and administrative functions described below for the Series D Notes and the Series E Notes, respectively. Citibank, N.A. will perform such functions in accordance with its respective obligations under a Letter of Representations from the Company and Citibank, N.A. to DTC dated as of the date hereof and a Medium-Term Note Certificate Agreement between Citibank, N.A. and DTC, dated as of October 31, 1988 and as amended to date, and its obligations as a participant in DTC, including DTC153s Same-Day Funds Settlement system ("SDFS"). Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas will perform such functions in accordance with its respective obligations under a Letter of Representations from the Company and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas to DTC to be executed on a future date and a Certificate Agreement between DTC and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, dated as of December 5, 1997 and as amended to date, and its obligations as a participant in DTC, including DTC153s SDFS.

A-2



Issuance:

On any date of settlement (as defined under "Settlement" below) for one or more Book-Entry Notes, the Company will issue a single global security in fully registered form without coupons (a "Global Security") representing up to U.S $500,000,000 principal amount of all such Book-Entry Notes of the same Series that have the same Original Issue Date, Original Issue Discount provisions, if any, Interest Payment Dates, Regular Record Dates, Interest Payment Period, redemption repayment and extension provisions, if any, Stated Maturity, and, in the case of Fixed Rate Notes, interest rate, and amortization schedule, if any, or, in the case of Floating Rate Notes, Initial Interest Rate, Base Rate, Index Maturity, Interest Reset Period, Interest Reset Dates, Spread and/or Spread Multiplier, if any, Minimum Interest Rate, if any, and Maximum Interest Rate, if any and, in each case, any other relevant terms (collectively, the "Terms"). Each Global Security will be dated and issued as of the date of its settlement. Each Global Security will bear an Original Issue Date, which will be (i) with respect to an original Global Security (or any portion thereof), the Original Issue Date specified in such Global Security and (ii) following a consolidation of Global Securities, with respect to the Global Security resulting from such consolidation, the most recent Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for on the predecessor Global Securities, regardless of the date of authentication of such resulting Global Security. No Global Security will represent (i) both Fixed Rate and Floating Rate Book-Entry Notes, (ii) any Certificated Note, or (iii) both Series D Notes and Series E Notes.

Identification Numbers:

The Company has arranged with the CUSIP Service Bureau of Standard & Poor153s Ratings Services (the "CUSIP Service Bureau") for the reservation of two Series of CUSIP numbers, one for Series D Notes and one for Series E Notes, each of which series consists of approximately 900 CUSIP numbers and relates to Global Securities representing Book-Entry Notes and book-entry medium-term notes issued by the Company with other Series designations. The DTC Agents, the Company and DTC have obtained from the CUSIP Service Bureau a written list of such reserved CUSIP numbers. The DTC Agents will assign CUSIP numbers to Global Securities as described below under Settlement Procedure "B". DTC will notify the CUSIP Service Bureau periodically of the CUSIP numbers that the DTC Agents have assigned to Global Securities. Each DTC Agent will notify the Company at any time when fewer than 100 of the reserved CUSIP numbers remain unassigned to Global Securities, and, if it deems necessary, the Company will reserve additional CUSIP numbers for assignment to Global Securities. Upon obtaining such additional CUSIP numbers, the Company shall deliver a list of such additional CUSIP numbers to either or both DTC Agents, as

A-3



needed, and to DTC.

Registration:

Global Securities will be issued only in fully registered form without coupons. Each Global Security will be registered in the name of CEDE & CO., as nominee for DTC, on the securities register for the Notes (the "Securities Register") maintained under the Indentures. The beneficial owner of a Book-Entry Note (or one or more indirect participants in DTC designated by such owner) will designate one or more participants in DTC (with respect to such Book-Entry Note, the "Participants") to act as agent or agents for such owner in connection with the book-entry system maintained by DTC, and DTC will record in book-entry form, in accordance with instructions provided by such Participants, a credit balance with respect to such beneficial owner in such Book-Entry Note in the account of such Participants. The ownership interest of such beneficial owner (or such participant) in such Book-Entry Note will be recorded through the records of such Participants or through the separate records of such Participants and one or more indirect participants in DTC.

Transfers:

Transfers of a Book-Entry Note will be accomplished by book entries made by DTC and, in turn, by Participants (and in certain cases, one or more indirect participants in DTC) acting on behalf of beneficial transferors and transferees of such Note.

Exchanges:

Each DTC Agent may deliver to DTC and the CUSIP Service Bureau at any time a written notice of consolidation (a copy of which shall be attached to the resulting Global Security described below) specifying (i) the CUSIP numbers of two or more outstanding Global Securities that represent (A) Fixed Rate Book-Entry Notes of the same Series Dnd having the same Terms and for which interest has been paid to the same date or (B) Floating Rate Book-Entry Notes of the same Series Dnd having the same Terms and for which interest has been paid to the same date, (ii) a date, occurring at least thirty days after such written notice is delivered and at least thirty days before the next Interest Payment Date for such Book-Entry Notes, on which such Global Securities shall be exchanged for a single replacement Global Security and (iii) a new CUSIP number to be assigned to such replacement Global Security. Upon receipt of such a notice, DTC will send to its participants (including the DTC Agent for such replacement Global Security) a written reorganization notice to the effect that such exchange will occur on such date. Prior to the specified exchange date, such DTC Agent will deliver to the CUSIP Service Bureau a written notice setting forth such exchange date and such new CUSIP number and stating that, as of such exchange date, the CUSIP numbers of the Global Securities to be exchanged will no longer be valid. On the specified exchange date, such DTC Agent will exchange such Global Securities for a single Global Security bearing the new CUSIP number and a new Original Issue Date, which

A-4



shall be the last date to which interest has been paid on the underlying Book-Entry Notes, and the CUSIP numbers of the exchanged Global Securities will, in accordance with CUSIP Service Bureau procedures, be canceled and not immediately reassigned. Upon such exchange, the DTC Agent will mark the predecessor Global Security "canceled", make appropriate entries in the DTC Agent153s records and destroy such canceled Global Security in accordance with the terms of the Indenture and deliver a certificate of destruction to the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Global Securities to be exchanged exceed U.S $500,000,000 in aggregate principal amount, one Global Security will be authenticated and issued to represent each U.S. $500,000,000 of principal amount of the exchanged Global Securities and an additional Global Security will be authenticated and issued to represent any remaining principal amount of such Global Securities (see "Denominations" below).

Maturities:

Each Book-Entry Note will mature on a date nine months or more after the issue date for such Note, except in the case of indexed Notes, for which the maturity may be shorter. A Floating Rate Book-Entry Note will mature only on an Interest Payment Date for such Note. Any Note denominated in Japanese yen will mature on a date not less than one year from the Original Issue Date (as defined below) for such Note. Any Note denominated in Pounds Sterling will mature on a date not less than one year, nor more than five years, after its Original Issue Date.

Denominations:

Unless otherwise agreed to by the Company, Book-Entry Notes will be issued in principal amounts of U.S.$1,000 or any amount in excess thereof that is an integral multiple of U.S.$1,000. If Book-Entry Notes are denominated in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars, the denominations of such Notes will be determined pursuant to the provisions of the applicable Pricing Supplement. Global Securities will be denominated in principal amounts not in excess of U.S.$500,000,000 (or the equivalent thereof). If one or more Book-Entry Notes having an aggregate principal amount in excess of U.S.$500,000,000 (or the equivalent thereof) would, but for the preceding sentence, be represented by a single Global Security, then one Global Security will be authenticated and issued to represent each U.S.$500,000,000 principal amount (or the equivalent thereof) of such Book-Entry Note or Notes and an additional Global Security will be authenticated and issued to represent any remaining principal amount of such Book-Entry Note or Notes. In such a case, each of the Global Securities representing such Book-Entry Note or Notes shall be assigned the same CUSIP number.

A-5


Notice of Redemption Dates:

Each DTC Agent will, with respect to the Notes for which it is Trustee, give notice to DTC prior to each Redemption Date (as specified in the Note) if any at the time and in the manner set forth in the Letter.

Interest:

General. Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable Pricing Supplement, interest, if any, on each Book-Entry Note will accrue from the Original Issue Date (or such other date on which interest otherwise begins to accrue, if different than the Original Issue Date) of the Global Security representing such Book-Entry Note for the first interest period or the last date to which interest has been paid, if any, for each subsequent interest period, on the Global Security representing such Book-Entry Note, and will be calculated and paid in the manner and on the Interest Payment Dates described in such Book-Entry Note and in the Prospectus (as defined in the Agency Agreement), as supplemented by the applicable Pricing Supplement. Each payment of interest on a Book-Entry Note will include interest accrued to but excluding the Interest Payment Date; provided that in the case of Floating Rate Notes that reset daily or weekly, interest payments will include interest accrued to but excluding the next preceding Regular Record Date, except that at stated Maturity, the interest payable will include interest accrued to, but excluding, the Maturity. Interest payable at the Maturity of a Book-Entry Note will be payable to the Person to whom the principal of such Note is payable.

Standard & Poor153s Ratings Services will use the information received in the pending deposit message described under Settlement Procedure "C" below in order to include the amount of any interest payable and certain other information regarding the related Global Security in the appropriate (daily or weekly) bond report published by Standard & Poor153s Ratings Services.

Regular Record Dates. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Pricing Supplement, the Regular Record Date with respect to any Interest Payment Date for a Floating-Rate Note, Fixed Rate Note or Indexed Rate Note shall be the date (whether or not a Business Day) fifteen calendar days immediately preceding such Interest Payment Date.

Payments of Principal and Interest:

Payment of Interest Only. Promptly after each Regular Record Date, the DTC Agent for each Global Security will deliver to the Company and DTC a written notice setting forth, by CUSIP number, the amount of interest to be paid on each Global Security on the following Interest Payment Date (other than an Interest Payment Date coinciding with Maturity) and the total of such amounts. DTC will confirm the amount payable on each Global Security on such Interest

A-6



Payment Date by reference to the appropriate (daily or weekly) bond reports published by Standard & Poor153s Ratings Services. The Company will pay to the Trustee for the Notes represented by such Global Security the total amount of interest due on such Interest Payment Date (other than at Maturity), and such Trustee will pay such amount to DTC at the times and in the manner set forth below under "Manner of Payment". If any Interest Payment Date for a Book-Entry Note is not a Business Day, the payment due on such day shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and no interest shall accrue as a result of such delayed payment.

Payments at Maturity or Upon Redemption. On or about the first Business Day of each month, each DTC Agent will, with respect to the Global Securities for which it acts as DTC Agent, deliver to the Company, DTC and the applicable Trustee a written list of principal and interest to be paid on each Global Security maturing either at Maturity or on a Redemption Date in the following month. The DTC Agent for each Global Security, the Company and DTC will confirm the amounts of such principal and interest payments with respect to each such Global Security on or about the fifth Business Day preceding the Maturity Date or Redemption Date of such Global Security. On or before such Maturity or Redemption, the Company will pay to the Trustee for the Notes represented by such Global Security the principal amount of such Global Security, together with interest due at such Maturity. Such Trustee will pay such amount to DTC at the times and in the manner set forth below under "Manner of Payment". If any Maturity of a Global Security representing Book-Entry Notes is not a Business Day, the payment due on such day shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and no interest shall accrue on such payment for the period from and after such Maturity Date or Redemption Date. Promptly after payment to DTC of the principal and interest due on the Maturity Date or on the Redemption Date of such Global Security, the Trustee for such Global Security will cancel and destroy such Global Security in accordance with the applicable Indenture and deliver a certificate of destruction to the Company.

Manner of Payment. The total amount of any principal and interest due on Global Securities on any Interest Payment Date or at Maturity or upon redemption shall be paid by the Company to the Trustee for the Notes represented by such Global Security in immediately available funds no later than 9:30 A.M. (New York City time) on such date. The Company will make such payment on such Global Securities by instructing such Trustee to withdraw funds from an account maintained by the Company with the DTC Agent for the Notes represented by such Global Securities. The Company will confirm any such instructions in writing to such Trustee. Prior to

A-7



10:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the Maturity Date or as soon as possible thereafter, such Trustee will pay by separate wire transfer (using Fedwire message entry instructions in a form previously specified by DTC) to an account at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York previously specified by DTC, in funds available for immediate use by DTC, each payment of principal (together with interest thereon) due on a Global Security on such Maturity Date or Redemption Date. On each Interest Payment Date (other than at Maturity), interest payments shall be made to DTC, in same day funds, in accordance with existing arrangements between the relevant DTC Agent and DTC. On each such date, DTC will pay, in accordance with its SDFS operating procedures then in effect, such amounts in funds available for immediate use to the respective Participants in whose names the Book-Entry Notes represented by such Global Securities are recorded in the book-entry system maintained by DTC. None of the Company (as issuer or as paying agent), the Guarantor, the Trustee or such DTC Agent shall have any direct responsibility or liability for the payment by DTC to such Participants of the principal of and interest on the Book-Entry Notes. If an issue of Notes is denominated in a currency other than the U.S. dollar, the Company will make payments of principal and any interest in the currency in which the Notes are denominated (the "foreign currency") or in U.S. dollars. DTC has elected to have all such payments of principal and interest in U.S. dollars unless notified by any of its Participants through which an interest in the Notes is held that it elects, in accordance with and to the extent permitted by the applicable Pricing Supplement and the Note, to receive such payment of principal or interest in the foreign currency. On or prior to the third Business Day after the record date for payment of interest and twelve days prior to the date for payment of principal, such Participant shall notify DTC of (i) its election to receive all, or the specified portion, of such payment in the foreign currency and (ii) its instructions for wire transfer of such payment to a foreign currency account.

DTC will notify the applicable Trustee on or prior to the fifth

A-8



business day after the record date for payment of interest and ten days prior to the date for payment of principal of the portion of such payment to be received in the foreign currency and the applicable wire transfer instructions, and the applicable Trustee shall use such instructions to pay the Participants directly. If DTC does not so notify the applicable Trustee, it is understood that only U.S. dollar payments are to be made. The applicable Trustee shall notify DTC on or prior to the second Business Day prior to payment date of the conversion rate to be used and the resulting U.S. dollar amount to be paid per U.S.$1,000 face amount. In the event that the applicable Trustee153s quotation to convert the foreign currency into U.S. dollars is not available, the applicable Trustee shall notify DTC153s Dividend Department that the entire payment is to be made in the foreign currency. In such event, DTC will ask its Participants for payment instructions and forward such instructions to the applicable Trustee and the applicable Trustee shall use such instructions to pay the Participants directly.

Withholding Taxes. The amount of any taxes required under applicable law to be withheld from any interest payment on a Book-Entry Note will be determined and withheld by the Participant, indirect participant in DTC or other Person responsible for forwarding payments and materials directly to the beneficial owner of such Note.

Procedures upon Company153s Exercise of Optional Reset or Optional Extension of Maturity:

Company Notice to Trustee regarding Exercise of Optional Reset. Not less than 45 or more than 60 days before an Optional Reset Date as set forth in a Book-Entry Note, the Company will notify the Trustee for such Book-Entry Note whether it is exercising its option to reset the interest rate or Spread or Spread Multiplier, as the case may be, for such Book-Entry Note, and if so, (i) the new interest rate or Spread or Spread Multiplier, as the case may be, for such Book-Entry Note during the period from such Optional Reset Date to the next Optional Reset Date as set forth in such Book-Entry Note or, if there is no such next Optional Reset Date, to the Stated Maturity of such Book-Entry Note (the "Subsequent Interest Period"); and (ii) the provisions, if any, for redemption of such Book-Entry Note during such Subsequent Interest Period, including the date or dates on which or the period or periods during which such redemption may occur during such Subsequent Interest Period.

Company Notice to Trustee regarding Exercise of Optional Extension of Maturity. If the Company elects to exercise an option, as set forth in a Book-Entry Note, to extend the Stated Maturity of such Note, it will so notify the Trustee for such Book-Entry Note no less than 45 or more than 60 days before the Stated Maturity of such Book-Entry

A-9



Note, and will further indicate (i) the new Stated Maturity; (ii) the interest rate or Spread or Spread Multiplier, as the case may be, applicable to the extension period; and (iii) the provisions, if any, for redemption of such Book-Entry Note during such extension period, including the date or dates on which or the period or periods during which such redemption may occur during such extension period.

Trustee Notice to DTC regarding Company153s Exercise of Optional Extension or Reset. Upon receipt of notice from the Company regarding the Company153s exercise of either an optional extension of maturity or an optional reset, the Trustee for the Book-Entry Note will hand-deliver a notice to DTC not less than 40 days before the Optional Reset Date (in which case a "Reset Notice") or the Stated Maturity (in which case an "Extension Notice"), as the case may be, which Reset Notice or Extension Notice shall identify such Book-Entry Note by CUSIP number and shall contain the information required by the terms of the Book-Entry Note.

Trustee Notice to Company regarding Option to be Repaid. If, after receipt of either a Reset Notice or an Extension Notice, DTC exercises the option for repayment by tendering the Global Security representing the Book-Entry Note to be repaid as set forth in such Note, the Trustee for such Book-Entry Note shall give notice to the Company not less than 22 days before the Optional Reset Date or the old Stated Maturity, as the case may be, of the principal amount of Book-Entry Notes to be repaid on such Optional Reset Date or old Stated Maturity, as the case may be.

Company Notice regarding New Interest Rate or New Spread or Spread Multiplier. If the Company elects to revoke the interest rate or Spread or Spread Multiplier provided for in the Reset Notice and establish a higher interest rate or Spread or Spread Multiplier for an Optional Reset Period or extension period, as the case may be, it shall, not less than 20 days before such Optional Reset Date or old Stated Maturity, so notify the Trustee for the affected Book-Entry Note. Such Trustee will immediately thereafter notify DTC of the new interest rate or Spread or Spread Multiplier applicable to such Book-Entry Note.

Trustee Notice to Company regarding DTC Revocation of Option to be Repaid. If, after DTC has tendered any Book-Entry Notes for repayment pursuant to an Extension Notice or an Optional Reset Notice, DTC then revokes such tender for repayment, the Trustee for such Book-Entry Notes shall give notice to the Company not less than five days prior to the Stated Maturity or Optional Reset Date, as the case may be, of such revocation and of the principal amount of

A-10



Book-Entry Notes for which tender for repayment has been revoked.

Deposit of Repayment Price. On or before any old Stated Maturity where the Maturity has been extended, and on or before any Optional Reset Date, the Company shall deposit with the applicable Trustee an amount of money sufficient to pay the principal amount, plus interest accrued to such old Stated Maturity or Optional Reset Date, as the case may be, for all the Book-Entry Notes or portions thereof for which such Trustee serves as Trustee and which are to be repaid on such old Stated Maturity or Optional Reset Date, as the case may be. Such Trustee will use such money to repay such Book-Entry Notes pursuant to the terms set forth in such Notes.

Procedures upon Company Notice to Trustee regarding Company153s Exercise of Optional Redemption:

Company Notice to Trustee regarding Company153s Exercise of Optional Redemption. At least 45 days prior to the date on which it intends to redeem a Book-Entry Note, the Company will notify the Trustee for such Book-Entry Note that it is exercising such option with respect to such Book-Entry Note on such date.

Procedure for Rate Setting and Posting:

The Company and the Agent will discuss from time to time the aggregate principal amount of, the issuance price of, and the interest rates to be borne by, Book-Entry Notes that may be sold as a result of the solicitation of orders by the Agent. If the Company decides to set prices of, and rates borne by, any Book-Entry Notes in respect of which the Agent is to solicit orders (the setting of such prices and rates to be referred to herein as "posting") or if the Company decides to change prices or rates previously posted by it, it will promptly advise the Agent of the prices and rates to be posted.

Acceptance and Rejection of Orders:

Unless otherwise instructed by the Company, the Agent will advise the Company promptly by telephone or other means of electronic communication of all orders to purchase Book-Entry Notes received by the Agent, other than those rejected by it in whole or in part in the reasonable exercise of its discretion. Unless otherwise agreed by the Company and the Agent, the Company has the right to accept orders to purchase Book-Entry Notes and may reject any such orders in whole or in part.

Preparation of Pricing Supplement:

If any order to purchase a Book-Entry Note is accepted by or on behalf of the Company, the Company will prepare a pricing supplement (a "Pricing Supplement") reflecting the terms of such Book-Entry Note, will file such Pricing Supplement with the Commission in accordance with the applicable paragraph of Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act, will deliver such number of copies thereof to the Agent as the Agent shall request. If required, the Agent will file such Pricing Supplement with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc.

If a sale is to be settled more than one Business Day after the sale date, Settlement Procedures "A", "B" and "C" shall be completed as soon as practicable but no later than 11:00 A.M., 12:00 Noon and 2:00 P.M., respectively, on the first Business Day after the sale date. If the Initial Interest Rate for a Floating Rate Book-Entry Note has not been determined at the time that Settlement Procedure "A" is completed, Settlement Procedures "B" and "C" shall be completed as soon as such rate has been determined but no later than 12:00 Noon and 2:00 P.M., respectively, on the Business Day before the settlement date. Settlement Procedure "I" is subject to extension in accordance with any extension of Fedwire closing deadlines and in the other events specified in SDFS operating procedures in effect on the settlement date.

If settlement of a Book-Entry Note is rescheduled or canceled, the DTC Agent for such Book-Entry Note, after receiving notice from the Company or the Agent, will deliver to DTC, through DTC153s Participant Terminal System, a cancellation message to such effect by no later than 2:00 P.M. on the Business Day immediately preceding the scheduled settlement date.

Failure to Settle:

If settlement of a Book-Entry Note is rescheduled and the DTC Agent for such Book-Entry Note has not entered an SDFS deliver order with respect to a Book-Entry Note pursuant to Settlement Procedure "G", after receiving notice from the Company or the Agent, such DTC Agent shall deliver to DTC, through DTC153s Participant Terminal System, as soon as practicable, a withdrawal message instructing DTC to debit such Book-Entry Note to such DTC Agent153s participant account. DTC will process the withdrawal message, provided that such DTC Agent153s participant account contains a principal amount of the Global Security representing such Book-Entry Note that is at least equal to the principal amount to be debited. If a withdrawal message is processed with respect to all the Book-Entry Notes represented by a Global Security, the Trustee for the Notes represented by such Global Security will mark such Global Security "canceled", make appropriate entries in its records and destroy such canceled Global Security in accordance with the applicable Indenture and deliver a certificate of destruction to the Company. The CUSIP number assigned to such Global Security shall, in accordance with CUSIP Service Bureau procedures, be

A-18



canceled and not immediately reassigned.

If a withdrawal message is processed with respect to one or more, but not all, of the Book-Entry Notes represented by a Global Security, the DTC Agent for such Book-Entry Notes will exchange such Global Security for two Global Securities, one of which shall represent such Book-Entry Notes and shall be canceled immediately after issuance and the other of which shall represent the other Book-Entry Notes previously represented by the surrendered Global Security and shall bear the CUSIP number of the surrendered Global Security.

If the purchase price for any Book-Entry Note is not timely paid to the Participants with respect to such Book-Entry Note by the beneficial purchaser thereof (or a Person, including an indirect participant in DTC, acting on behalf of such purchaser), such Participants and, in turn, the Presenting Agent may enter SDFS deliver orders through DTC153s Participant Terminal System reversing the orders entered pursuant to Settlement Procedures "H" and "G", respectively. Thereafter, the DTC Agent for such Book-Entry Note will deliver the withdrawal message and take the related actions described in the preceding paragraph. If such failure shall have occurred for any reason other than a default by the Agent in the performance of its obligations hereunder and under the Agency Agreement, then the Company will reimburse the Agent for the loss of the use of the funds during the period when they were credited to the account of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon any failure to settle with respect to a Book-Entry Note, DTC may take any actions in accordance with its SDFS operating procedures then in effect. In the event of a failure to settle with respect to one or more, but not all, of the Book-Entry Notes to have been represented by a Global Security, the DTC Agent for such Book-Entry Note or Notes will provide, in accordance with Settlement Procedures "E" and "G", for the authentication and issuance of a Global Security representing the other Book-Entry Notes to have been represented by such Global Security and will make appropriate entries in its records.

Trustees Not to Risk Funds:

Nothing herein shall be deemed to require either Trustee to risk or expend its own funds in connection with any payment to the Company, DTC, the Agent or the purchaser, it being understood by all parties that payments made by either Trustee to the Company, DTC, the Agent or the purchaser shall be made only to the extent that funds are provided to such Trustee for such purpose.

Authenticity of Signatures:

The Company will cause each of the Trustees to furnish the Agent from time to time with the specimen signatures of each of such Trustee153s officers, employees or agents who has been authorized by

A-19



such Trustee to authenticate Book-Entry Notes, but the Agent will not have any obligation or liability to the Company or the Trustee in respect of the authenticity of the signature of any officer, employee or agent of the Company or such Trustee on any Book-Entry Note.

Payment of Expenses:

The Agent shall forward to the Company, on a monthly basis, a statement of the out-of-pocket expenses incurred by such Agent during that month that are reimbursable to it pursuant to the terms of the Agency Agreement. The Company will remit payment to the Agent currently on a monthly basis.

Each Trustee will serve as registrar and transfer agent in connection with the Certificated Notes for which it serves as Trustee.

Issuance:

Each Certificated Note will be dated and issued as of the date of its authentication by the applicable Trustee. Each Certificated Note will bear an Original Issue Date, which will be (i) with respect to an original Certificated Note (or any portion thereof), its original issuance date (which will be the settlement date) and (ii) with respect to any Certificated Note (or portion thereof) issued subsequently upon transfer or exchange of a Certificated Note or in lieu of a destroyed, lost or stolen Certificated Note, the Original Issue Date of the predecessor Certificated Note, regardless of the date of authentication of such subsequently issued Certificated Note.

Registration:

Certificated Notes will be issued only in fully registered form without coupons.

Maturities:

Each Certificated Note will mature on a date nine months or more after the issue date for such Note, except in the case of indexed Notes, for which the maturity may be shorter.

Any Note denominated in Japanese yen will mature on a date not less than one year from the Original Issue Date (as defined below) for such Note. Any Note denominated in Pounds Sterling will mature on a date not less than one year, nor more than five years, after its Original Date.

The authorized denominations of Certificated Notes denominated in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars shall be determined as set forth in the applicable Pricing Supplement.

Interest:

General. Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable Pricing Supplement, interest, if any, on each Certificated Note will accrue from the Original Issue Date (or such other date on which interest otherwise begins to accrue (if different from the Original Issue Date)) of such Note for the first interest period or the last date to which interest has been paid, if any, for each subsequent interest period, on such Note, and will be calculated and paid in the manner and on the dates described in such Note and in the Prospectus, as supplemented by the applicable Pricing Supplement. Unless otherwise specified therein, each payment of interest on a Certificated Note will include interest accrued to but excluding the Interest Payment Date (provided that, in the case of Certificated Notes which reset daily or weekly, interest payments will include accrued interest to and including the next preceding Regular Record Date), except that at stated Maturity, the interest payable will include interest accrued to, but excluding, the stated Maturity (other than a Maturity of a Fixed Rate Certificated Note occurring on the 31st day of a month, in which case such payment of interest will include interest accrued to but excluding the 30th day of such month or the last day of the month in the case of February).

Following each Regular Record Date, such Trustee or paying agent will furnish the Company with a list of interest payments to be made on the following Interest Payment Date for each Certificated Note and in total for all Certificated Notes.

Such Trustee or paying agent will provide monthly to the Company lists of principal and interest, to the extent ascertainable, to be paid on Certificated Notes maturing or to be redeemed in the next month.

Withholding Taxes. The amount of any taxes required under applicable law to be withheld from any interest payment on a Certificated Note will be determined and withheld by the applicable Trustee.

The Company will be responsible for withholding taxes on interest paid on Certificated Notes as required by applicable law.

If any interest Payment Date for or the Maturity of a Certificated Note is not a Business Day, the payment due on such day shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and no interest shall accrue on account of such delayed payment.

On or before any old Stated Maturity where the Maturity has been extended, and on or before any Optional Reset Date, the Company shall deposit with such Trustee an amount of money sufficient to pay the principal amount, plus interest accrued to such old Stated Maturity or Optional Reset Date, as the case may be, for all the Certificated Notes or portions thereof for which such Trustee serves as Trustee and which are to be repaid on such old Stated Maturity or Optional Reset Date, as the case may be. Such

A-28



Trustee will use such money to repay such Certificated Notes pursuant to the terms set forth in such Notes.

Procedures upon Company153s Exercise of Optional Redemption:

Company Notice to Trustee regarding Exercise of Optional Redemption. At least 45 days prior to the date on which it intends to redeem a Certificated Note, the Company will notify the Trustee for such Certificated Note that it is exercising such option with respect to such Note on such date.

Trustee Notice to Holders regarding Company153s Exercise of Optional Redemption. After receipt of notice that the Company is exercising its option to redeem a Certificated Note, the Trustee for such Certificated Note will, at least 30 days before the redemption date for such Certificated Note, mail a notice, first class, postage prepaid, to the Holder of such Certificated Note, informing such Holder of the Company153s exercise of such option with respect to such Certificated Note.

Payments of Principal and Interest Upon Exercise of Optional Repayment (Except Pursuant to Company153s Exercise of Optional Reset or Optional Extension):

Trustee Notice to Company of Option to be Repaid. Upon receipt of notice of exercise of the option for repayment and the Certificated Notes to be repaid as set forth in such Notes, the Trustee for such Certificated Notes shall (unless such notice was received pursuant to the Company153s exercise of an optional reset or an optional extension of maturity, in each of which cases the relevant procedures set forth above shall be followed) give notice to the Company not less than 20 days prior to each Optional Repayment Date of such Optional Repayment Date and of the principal amount of Certificated Notes to be repaid on such Optional Repayment Date.

Failure to Settle:

If a purchaser fails to accept delivery of and make payment for any Certificated Note, the Agent will notify the Company and the applicable Trustee by telephone and return such Note to the applicable Trustee. Upon receipt of such notice, the Company will immediately wire transfer to the account of the Agent an amount equal to the amount previously credited thereto in respect of such Note. Such wire transfer will be made on the settlement date, if possible, and in any event not later than the Business Day following the settlement date. If the failure shall have occurred for any reason other than a default by the Agent in the performance of its obligations hereunder and under the Agency Agreement with the Company, then the Company will reimburse the Agent or the applicable Trustee, as appropriate, on an equitable basis for its loss of the use of the funds during the period when they were credited to the account of the Company. Immediately upon receipt of the Certificated Note in respect of which such failure occurred, the applicable Trustee will mark such Note "canceled", make appropriate entries in the

A-29



applicable Trustee153s records and send such Note to the Company.

Trustees Not to Risk Funds:

Nothing herein shall be deemed to require either Trustee to risk or expend its own funds in connection with any payment to the Company, the Agent or the purchaser, it being understood by all parties that payments made by either Trustee to the Company, the Agent or the purchaser shall be made only to the extent that funds are provided to such Trustee for such purpose.

Authenticity of Signatures:

The Company will cause each Trustee to furnish the Agent from time to time with the specimen signatures of each of such Trustee153s officers, employees or agents who has been authorized by such Trustee to authenticate Certificated Notes, but the Agent will not have any obligation or liability to the Company or a Trustee in respect of the authenticity of the signature of any officer, employee or agent of the Company or a Trustee on any Certificated Note.

Payment of Expenses:

The Agent shall forward to the Company, on a monthly basis, a statement of the out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Agent during that month that are reimbursable to it pursuant to the terms of the Agency Agreement. The Company will remit payment to the Agent currently on a monthly basis.

Advertising Costs:

The Company will determine with the Agent the amount of advertising that may be appropriate in soliciting orders to purchase the Certificated Notes. Advertising expenses will be paid by the Company.
